"The Joe Bev Experience Travels Through Time & Space" Radio Theater - Saturday 4:30 pm ET on CRAGG!



David Ossman, Fred Frees, Willoughby and the Professor and Great Northern Audio take listeners on a one hour radio theater ride, part of The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block, starting 2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT on cultradioagogo.com.

This Saturday, May 25, at 4:30 pm, "The Joe Bev Experience Travels Through Time & Space" airs Saturday at 4:30 PM ET. 1:30 pm PT, part of The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block, starting 2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT on Cult Radio A-Go-Go! cultradioagogo.com.

It was posted on Facebook today by Brian K. Brice of Great Northern Audio: 
"Just got word that Joe Bev will be playing Great Northern's "Peter Galaxy: Interstellar Envoy" as part of his Cult Radio show this Saturday. One of the cool things about this spoof on old time radio adventure serials is that we were able to pair David Ossman of the Firesign Theatre with Michael Sheard, probably best known for playing the "you have failed me for the last time" Admiral Ozzel in Star Wars as well as working in a ton of Doctor Whos. Originally trained in Shakespeare, Michael said he hadn't performed on stage in 20 years and had a wonderful time. You can hear it in his voice. Also, starring Tick Wick, Windy Bowlsby, Irene Ruderman Clark, and Preston Ossman."

Peter Galaxy, Interstellar Envoy is part of "The Joe Bev Experience Travels Through Time & Space," the 39th edition of the weekly omnibus. "Can two retired, old-time radio actors find work for 300 billion illegal aliens? Michael Sheard (Star Wars, Dr. Who) and David Ossman (Firesign Theatre) join forces to show just how much fun answering that question can be."

In addition, "Napoleon Brandy," part 2, will be read by Fred Frees, one of the six stories from his audiobook "Dracula Meets Jack The Ripper" (written by Michael B. Druxman), available at Amazon.

Also, on the hour will be part 1 of The Whithering of Willoughby and the Professor, Episode 14: ''I Do Not Like the Blackness of Her Nose'' or ''The Penguins Laugh at You!” written by Joe Bevilacqua and Robert J. Cirasa, produced, directed and voiced by Bevilacqua.


Brian K. Price also wrote: "Joseph Bevilacqua's website (http://www.joebev.com/) is entertaining, informative and goofy–a wonderful mix and just the kind of place to hear SOLID STATE UNIVERSITY – hope you have time to visit. And listen in for other Great Northern Audio works in the coming months."

Joe Bev Celebrates His 60th New Radio Theater of 2012-13 May 25 2:30 pm on CRAGG!

"Ellis' Coconut Bubble Troubles" airs Saturdays as part of The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block, which includes The Jazz-O-Rama Hour & The Joe Bev Experience, starting 2:30 pm ET, 1:30 CT, 11:30 PT on cultradioagogo.com!


This Saturday, May 24th, The Comedy-O-Rama Hour presents "Ellis' Coconut Bubble Troubles". The new radio play is part of The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block, starting 2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT onhttp://www.cultradioagogo.com.

Sgt. Lefty, Ellis da Boatkeeper, Adam Maxwell, Lil Andy, Sal Pilvers, Cary Gooper, Gary Cant, Minnewaska Minnie are some of the crazy characters at Camp Waterlogg, a fictional dilapidated Catskills kids camp. Each week, all of these characters are played by one man: Joseph Bevilacqua (aka Joe Bev).

Joe Bev is celebrating his 60th new radio theater in nearly as many weeks, a feat it took Bev four years to accomplish while during his stint at Sirius XM. Bev's new surge of creativity is the result of an offer from Internet radio station Cult Radio A-Go-Go! in early 2012.

"First they asked me to do one radio hour per week. Then two and three," recalls the veteran actor-writer-producer-director, who now creates weekly The Joe Bev 3-Hour Block, which includes The Comedy-O-Rama Hour, The Jazz-O-Rama Hour & The Joe Bev Experience.



"It has been wonderful to have a place to play, to try out new ideas!" exclaims Bev, who co-creates Comedy-O-Rama with his wife Lorie Kellogg.

"Joe an Lorie are both extremely talented voice artists. They can both do lots of entertaining voices, not just characterizations but whole personalities, and they both have a fine flair for drama, satire, and comedy. Put them together and, well, need I say more? If you haven’t heard these two at work, you’re missing out on something special," wrote Stephen Brandt in an Audiobook Heaven review. 

On this Saturday's hour of audio madness, Ellis and Adam try to cook lunch to win back their gals, Elise and Aleta Mae (Lorie Kellogg) from Cary and Gary. Sgt. Lefty's mom is a pool shark dressed as tree, and a pair of racoons (Kenny Savoy) come to steal chickens.



Also featured on the hour will be the 8th installment of the first new "Lum and Abner" comedy since 1954, written and performed by Donnie Pitchford, who also draws the "Lum and Abner" comic strip appearing at http://firstarkansasnews.net/lum-and-abner/ in a "Sunday strip" format with a new installment each Sunday.
